Today we are looking at a new GTX 560 from Sparkle, which features 2 GB of GDDR5 and is supplied in an overclocked state. At £170 inc vat is this the ideal graphics card upgrade for a new Christmas system build?

The GTX560 has proven to be a popular card for Nvidia building upon the incredible success of the GTX460. The reference card has 7 SMs, 32 ROPS, 512kb of L2 cache, 336 SPs and 1GB of GDDR5 memory connected via a 256 bit memory bus. This Sparkle GTX560 card is equipped with double the memory (2GB GDDR5) with a higher core clock speed (822mhz). This is sure to enhance performance at higher resolutions when image quality is cranked.

    I already have this card and the review is fair, it is a bit loud due to the single, small fan, but performance is great. THey should have made a dual fan version

    Sparkle? didnt even know they were still going. they have a weak presense in UK. not the first company I would think of for a purchase.

    looks like a decent card, but the cooler is quite poor considering the competition. You were too nice in the review

    I think this card is pointless with new AMD cards launching soon and all that.
